Description

Covers modeling, graphing and solving linear equations in context. Explores how to clearly communicate sophisticated arguments supported by quantitative evidence using words, tables, graphs, and mathematical equations as appropriate. Covers dimensional analysis as it arises contextually in applications.

Learning outcomes

1. Use signed numbers in context.
2. Use order of operations correctly in mathematical expressions, including expressions with signed numbers, as they apply to data – based/statistical/probabilistic applications.
3. Create and use basic algebraic formulae, including slope/gradient, square and cube roots.
4. Interpret numerical information from bar graphs, scatterplots, and other graphical displays of information, and make reasonable conclusions based upon data or situations. Use technology to perform calculations and create graphical displays.
5. Apply dimensional analysis as it arises contextually in applications.
